Advantages of using Cedral slates on your facade

  • Size and quality uniformity; fibre cement slates are uniform in both size and quality; unlike natural slates which can suffer from inconsistent grading, size and thickness.

  • Strong and practical; Fibre cement is lighter than clay, concrete and natural slates and has the advantage of being thinner whilst holding the same strength properties.

  • Efficient installation; Cedral slates are pre holed which supports efficient installation, less breakages and easy to work with.
